Utilizing Nitrogen Production for Applications in the Coffee Industry

Utilizing Nitrogen Production for Applications in the Coffee Industry

Coffee is a common beverage among many of us during those early mornings. This traditional hot drink is not only tasty, but it may also provide you energy for the day. A large percentage of the industry is devoted to roasting the beans to provide you with the most flavorful cup of coffee. The color and scent of the coffee bean are improved by roasting in addition to giving the flavor profile a more robust appearance. However, when the roasting process is complete, air exposure will shorten the coffee's shelf life and cause it to lose flavor quickly. Therefore, our Nitrogen packing machine helps replace oxygen with pure nitrogen during the packing of coffee, and will eventually aid in preserving the freshness and flavor of your coffee.

Why Compressed Nitrogen is Important for Preserving the Quality of Coffee

Nitrogen is essential for keeping the quality of your coffee from roasting to brewing. The staleness of coffee beans or ground coffee may be a sign that a nitrogen generator wasn't used while packaging the coffee. Coffee with nitro flavoring has recently taken over as the preferred beverage for serious coffee drinkers. The coffee, which is often referred to as nitro cold brew, is made by directly pumping pressurized nitrogen gas or nitrogen and CO2 gas mixture into iced coffee kegs, and then serving it on tap like beer.

Additional justifications for why food-grade nitrogen is necessary for the ideal cup of coffee include the following:

Bulk coffee storage: Freshly roasted coffee bean

It can be kept in airtight silos for up to a month if they are not immediately packed after roasting. To preserve freshness and keep the oxygen concentration at or below 3%, these silos undergo frequent nitrogen gas purges. The beans must then wait until they are ready to be packaged before a nitrogen generator is in charge of providing a constant flow of nitrogen gas.

Coffee Packaging:

The current packaging method flushes the bags of coffee beans or grounds coffee with pure nitrogen, similar to how nitrogen is utilized for keeping freshly roasted coffee beans. This procedure aids in the removal of oxygen and moisture from inside and nitrogen does not have the same effects on the coffee's oil production as oxygen would. Nitrogen flushing has two advantages. Even if the product is purchased days, weeks, or months after the coffee was packaged, the use of nitrogen in this specific application ensures that the buyer will get a fresh and fragrant bag of coffee. The second reason is that nitrogen flushing makes sure that your coffee grounds and beans maintain their potent coffee fragrance, which is important for ardent coffee consumers.

The ideal gas to employ in this procedure is nitrogen since it is inert, which means that it won't interact with the coffee's oils the way oxygen would. In fact, over time, coffee oils can even oxidize, which makes using nitrogen to stop this from happening even more crucial!

Coffee pods and K-Cups may both be nitrogen flushed using the same technique. Sealed cups from SANEU K-cup nitrogen sealer only contain less than 1% oxygen, pods can keep coffee fresher longer than conventionally packaged coffee. Depending on several variables, including the kind of our Nitrogen packing machine being used, the number of flushes per bag, and other considerations, the nitrogen gas purity criteria for all flushing operations might vary a bit. The necessary nitrogen purity for coffee packing, whether in a bag or pod, can only be provided by our machines.
